I think this is No 11 on Stefaniegasse the photo taken from the end of
Padinigasse descending into its courtyard.
Most flats of the street had 3+ rooms. Of course the courts were not
so nice even in the 30th and deteriorated
very much under the soviets. Also most appartments got subdivided in
that period - at least 2 families occupying them.
But looking at the architecture in that specific photo you can see
that it had some pretentions when it was built.
Not just straight lines as a Mietskaserne should be and indeed was at
that times and later.
